I am so confused...and I did not really get an answer...perhaps someone can help me understand?

Why can't I ignore ANY background noise? Is this common with hyperacusis?

 

That's how this all started. Then I went to a dance last night which had loud music, and now hearing the letter "S"  and the sound "SH" is painful/annoying.  I also had fullness in my ears and I had to keep "equalizing" my eustachian tubes.

Can someone tell me what is going on? How do I stop the pain...prevent further injury...might this go back to just the background noises?

Thank you!

Hi Vered, ((( Smiles ))))

 

I found with hyperacusis I had a hard time ignoring back ground sound as sound just seem to come at a person from all over..

 

And I've heard and read about the letter S thing as well..

 

See I don't know what you have right now.. Read the supplemental home page on what is hyperacusis..

 

Yet.. Hyperacusis can come on in different ways of symptoms and not everybody gets full blown classic hyperacusis..

 

Hyperacusis can be very mild , mild, mild moderate, moderate, severe ect...

 

So.. I don't know.. You need to read other people stories. Other people talk about the S thing.. It's not something I've never heard of before..

 

But whatevers going on with you.. Don't go to dances.. Stay out of loud if you don't want to possibly make things worse. Further injury yourself..

 

And this is Dan's network. Dan Malcores board and network.. Your allready here.. And just read all you can on what you can do...   

 

You Wrote...

 

I also had fullness in my ears and I had to keep "equalizing" my eustachian tubes.

 

Fullness is common in H. Maybe you shouldn't mess with your E-Tubes.. I don't know...

 

The pain may not go right away right now but it may in time if you stop going to loud places and give your ears time to heal and calm down...

 

Thats.. What you could do for yourself right now... Plus .. Read all the information contained in this board...

Does the S thing ever go away..  (((( Smiles ))))

 

This is so new for you... I think Bonnie has the S thing.. And others have wrote about it before... I think it can... If it's part of hyperacusis like I had terrible hyperacusis and lots of symptoms I had have gone away for me over time..

 

But for me it was just not the S thing.. It was everything that came out of someones mouth was bad..  Every letter.. Every word.. I didn't notice any letter that stood out for me...

 

With my hyperacusis.. Everything was super sonic loud tinny sharp high frequency wierd sounding cutting like an icepick of sound. I don't remember focusing on any certain letter. It all hurt and sounded harsh and sharp ...

 

But if all that could get better for me and for others as well over time. Yours possible could too. Bonnie is doing TRT right now..

 

But she talked about the S thing. Others have as well.. You would have to look that up in a search on the board...

 

For a better search of progression over time.. The old archive board is better for that.. But I'm not sure if the link is working for that at this time otherwise I would look it up for you.

 

Instead..  I need to wait for the Cd instead.. Just read whats here...

 

And panicking  is the worst thing you can do for yourself at this time..

Stress will not help you out at all.

 

You need to calm your ears down. Not stress them out...

I always recommend people to get this book:

THE POWER OF SOUNDS – “JOSHUA LEEDS” @2001

Psychoacoustics: The study of the perception of sound, including how we listen, our psychological responses, and the physiological impact of music and sound on the human nervous system.


If you google NoiseWatch, and read the horror stories many are similar to yours, and these were from 14 years ago, they also knew the same back then - nothing.  But just pick up a $38.00 white noise machine from PharmaPlus or Zellers, believe me your ears will thank you!
